It sickens and saddens me that liberals have been able to distort the facts in the case of U.S. Rep. Mark Foley of Florida. For those who haven’t been following the left-wing media on this one – Foley was caught sending suggestive emails to a teenage page. He has since stepped down from Congress.
Foley isn’t the first nor will he be the last politician to be tantalized by a nubile, teenage boy hot in the throes of hormone overload. I’ve seen some of these young “studs” in action at the Ripsaw Boys & Girls Club where I volunteer my time. Many of these boys have been corrupted by Hollywood and, as result, exude sex like skunks. Foley should have known better to fall into that trap!
Liberals and their enablers in the mainstream press have done an outstanding job of making this a case of Republican (i.e. Christian) hypocrisy. The story, according to this distorted view, is that Republicans say one thing and then do another. The Foley case is supposed to call into question all of the values that the right holds dear such as slashing taxes for social programs, murdering murderers, torturing Muslim terrorists, and bombing the Middle East to smithereens. Liberals have done a particularly good job of equating Foley’s lies with Republican lies about Iraq.
Utter nonsense, of course!
Thank god for the right and President George W. Bush or the United States would be overrun by Muslim extremists and we’d all be forced to bow down to Mecca every morning and night!
It is conservatives who have kept us safe. Republicans understand that the Iraq War is a war for peace – and that as soon as we rid ourselves of these good-for-nothing terrorists who hate our Christian love of peace and democracy – that we will finally be able to create an Eden on earth. There’s nothing wrong with torturing and killing Muslims because they might have information we need to just possibly save innocent, Christian lives. Why is that so difficult to accept?
It’s a shame that liberals refuse to listen to President Bush – who has eloquently made the case for the war in Iraq and why we need to break the U.S. Constitution and the Geneva Convention to use torture. Try to remember that the man is our president – and a good Christian to boot – and that he would never do anything to harm our great nation (unlike that scoundrel Bill Clinton)!
And you can always reach for your Bible: “Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.” (Deuteronomy 19:21). Clearly, God understands that violence is necessary on occasion. Even Jesus employed violence when he went ballistic and threw the money-lenders out of the temple!
But let’s get back to the Foley case. Liberals have one fact right in the Foley case: it is about hypocrisy. But the hypocrisy of the left!
Liberals forget that Foley was gay – a liberal malady if there ever was one. Most liberals are either homosexual and have them as friends (and they all like Nathan Lane movies). Foley wasn’t a conservative – but a liberal struggling to become a conservative. It’s a classic case of good vs. evil. Foley had a dual personality that was in constant flux and ultimately his liberal side got the better of him.
I commend Foley for this fight, even if he ultimately lost. Foley recognized that his “liberal” side was wrong and rather than embrace his homosexuality and move to Massachusetts or California to open an interior decorating studio or become a college professor, Foley decided to battle against it. He repressed this sick sexual disease many liberals promote and tried to become a God-fearing conservative.
He ran for Congress as a Republican and embraced conservative causes. He even became an advocate for strengthening laws against child molesting homosexuals. He did a laudable job at first – but those frolicking, little Congressional pages finally did him in. That’s how strong the disease of liberalism is.
Fight liberalism. That’s the real lesson of the Foley case. (The Rev. Colson Crosslick is pastor of the Pretty Good Shepherd Church in Ripsaw, Arkansas. In the past, he has called for a boycott of all Hollywood movies starring Nathan Lane. He also writes the regularly appearing column Under God's Right Arm for DaRK PaRTY.)
